NATIONAL BIOPHARMA MISSION - SKILL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES

The National Biopharma Mission (NBM) is an Academia-Industry Collaborative Mission for Accelerating Discovery Research to Early Development for Biopharmaceuticals. The objective of the Mission is to enable and nurture an ecosystem for preparing India’s technological and product development capabilities in biopharmaceuticals including vaccines, biologics, medical devices and diagnostics to a level that will be globally competitive over the next decade.

The dedicated Program Management Unit (PMU) at Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC) under the aegis of Department of Biotechnology is the Implementing Agency for the Mission. Under the National Biopharma Mission, skill development training programmes shall be facilitated for young professionals to build next generation inter-disciplinary skills for product innovation, knowledge of navigating regulatory policies, business development capabilities, better management of IPR systems and practices for building effective workforce and next generation leaders through close engagement and collaboration of industry and academic training partners.

Skill development training programmes under National Biopharma Mission shall play a crucial role in equipping the prospective workforce with employable skills and knowledge and capacity building of industry workforce so that they can contribute substantively to the Indian biopharmaceutical sector.

In view of the above, the National Biopharma Mission has engaged Biotech Consortium India Limited (BCIL) to organize a series of hands-on and lecture-based workshops in different areas of the biopharmaceuticals across the country.

Owing to the global coronavirus pandemic situation and need to reduce its transmission within our country, training programmes to be held at CSIO Chandigarh, IIT Delhi and Venture Center Pune have been postponed. New dates shall be announced later. Inconvenience caused to all the participants is deeply regretted.
